I was injured during my stay at this resort .I was hit by a full can from one of the balconies. If it had hit a child, I'm not sure what would have happened. There is only one security guard on duty per shift for 570 rooms, unacceptable! The security cannot control this resort. My family and I didn't feel... More

Great hotel. Great rooms, good beach, and nice employees. Only bad thing about the hotel is the wait for luggage carts and elevators. The overall stay here is amazing! If you're looking for a place to stay with your family, this is the place.

As mentioned by others there is a serious issue with the elevators at Tidewater. Don't book a condo higher than you are willing to walk up to. In general the place is decent however the design of the building, including elevators, is not sufficient for the number of units in the buidling. The entire complex was crowded. We have stayed...

We stayed here from 6-28 to 7-5 with 4 adults and 3 teenagers. Our condo was a 3 bedroom, 3 bath with 2 additional bunks and a pull out couch on the 24th floor. The first day, the elevators were a nightmare and walking up 24 flights (48 sets) of stairs wasn't really feasible. ..we did go down to keep... More

After reading several reviews from this resort, we were a little nervous about our trip. I am a very critical person when it comes to our vacations. First of all, if you plan on checking in on Saturday, it will be busy! There were several waiting to check in but the staff was very polite and helpful. Finding a luggage... More

We stayed in Unit 511, which was a very nice unit. Lucky that we were on 5th floor, so that stairs could be used most of the time. Elevators were very slow! It took over 25 minutes to get from 5th Floor to ground level using elevator on Sunday, June 29. Every elevator going down was packed and could not... More

Thank you for sharing your experience. We have been looking at purchasing a unit for a rental program in this property. These issues MUST be addressed and changed before we will consider going any further. I for one agree that service with a SMILE is critical and the umbrella system must be curved to be the same for all whether... More

First off when you arrive at the check in time they have not got the rooms ready, for $300+ nightly that along is sad. The security out front is very rude. Some people are allowed to unload there but most are told to go across the street to garage to unload, I guess if you slip the security guard a... More

The room was nice. I have one room complaint...the television. My wife picked this particular condo (unit 2916) specifically because it had upgrades. It had a 42" flat screen, granite, stainless, travertine, etc. I was nicely equipped. However, we checked in on Sunday. I turned the tv on almost immediately and noticed no sound. I troubleshot a little bit (I'm... More

I've never considered jumping off of a building, until I stayed on the 16th floor of the Tidewater. It took my family nearly two hours to get a luggage cart and get from the parking deck to our room. I timed each elevator trip after that one, many of which stopped ON EVERY FREAKING FLOOR going down. Room was mediocre... More
